S e c r e t s:
This bathing kitty is a Turkish Van, a breed that is known to like water, actually. According to legend, there were two white cats aboard Noah’s ark. After the flood, Noah lowered the gangplank, accidentally hitting the cats’ tails, which turned a fiery auburn color. The cats settled in the town of Van, where stories, songs and poems of the area mention the “swimming cats.” The word “Van” is written on the cat’s brush. Who’s that hiding beneath the cat’s tail? Could it be Osama Bin Laden? The mouse cowers beneath the brush. The interior of the Version One shows a swimming cat trying to catch some fish. Version Two features a mould variation.
